What to pack to look your best on vacation
We’re continuing our Capsule Wardrobe series this month with a focus on summer vacation and travel. While a summer vacation is most certainly about rest and relaxation, that doesn’t mean your style needs to take a vacation as well. There are definitely ways to keep it relaxed and stay tailored and dapper at the same time. And that’s what the 10 pieces in our July collection are all about.

Here are the 10 pieces:
– Cream linen blazer

– Brown horse bit loafers
– Black espadrilles
And here are several ways to style them.
There are a few key things to keep in mind when considering your airport style. Be sure to wear a pair of loafers. They’re easy to slip on and off, which makes traveling through the security line that much easier. If you are bringing two blazers on your trip, wear one to the airport to save it from getting wrinkled in your suitcase. (Remember, even if you know how to pack it, wrinkles are unavoidable.) When you get on the plane, simply remove it, fold it once lengthwise and then in half again and stow in the overhead compartment. And if you plan to bring a hat, it is best to wear it to the airport rather than pack it in a bag.
A nice dinner at your resort is the time to break out your best sport coat. Keep it casual with a lightweight denim shirt and cotton trousers and finish the look off with a fun pair of loafers.
Comfort and style do not have to be mutually exclusive. A short sleeve printed shirt and linen pants will keep you cool in both the looks and temperature departments. Espadrilles are a great utility shoe and a hat will save your face from the sun’s rays.
A few tweaks make the last look more appropriate for sunset cocktails. Throw on your sport coat and swap your linen trousers for a more structured cotton pair with a cuff.
Never underestimate the power of a simple polo shirt. Focus on a few accessories to kick it up a notch. And if it gets a little warmer, roll up your pant legs and dip your feet in the pool.
Wear linen and cotton to keep those vacation vibes going on your way home.
